Transformative moments don’t happen just for the students at Ithaca College. The 2014–2015 academic year was a big one for IC's leadership giving community, too. 870 of us contributed $5.2 million to IC.
And we stepped out this summer with a brand new name: the Blue & Gold Society.This coming year is one of change. But one thing remains steadfast: our dedication to IC's students. Our investment, opinions, and enthusiasm transform thousands of lives every single year.
This past fiscal year was no different.In 2014–2015, the IC leadership giving community provided tremendous support for unique and challenging educational opportunities—and for the creation of an enriching environment in which those lessons become lived experiences.
By dint of our dedication and investment, the President's Associates continued to strengthen the foundation from which the college and its students—and the new Blue & Gold Society—can soar.Thank you for all you've done this year for Ithaca College. See the power of your philanthropy here (and here and here).
Hats off to Seniors
There's a lot going on during a student's senior year at IC, and the members of the class of 2015 listed below added one more thing to their to-do list: make a gift to Ithaca College.
We thank our most recent alumni for their generosity, and are proud of the example they've set for future classes.
Leaving a Legacy
The W. Grant Egbert Founder's Society, now called the Founder's Circle, is a select group of Ithaca College donors who have included a gift to IC in their will or other estate plans. The Founder's Circle is a part of the Blue & Gold Society, a community of the college's leading philanthropists.
When W. Grant Egbert founded the Ithaca Conservatory of Music in 1892, he had a vision to create an institution that offered a superior quality of instruction. In 1992, the year of Ithaca's centennial, the Founder's Society was established to honor those who make a continuing commitment to Egbert's vision through planned giving. Donors who make planned gifts play a vital role in ensuring that Ithaca offers unparalleled educational opportunities well beyond their lifetimes.
We'd like to offer a sincere thank you to the following individuals who have remembered Ithaca College in their will or other estate plans.
Philanthropic support from corporations, foundations, and other organizations is crucial to fostering and sustaining the unique educational experience at Ithaca College.
Working closely with IC's Office of Sponsored Research, we focus on institutional priorities such as curricular and programmatic initiatives, faculty research, capital improvements, scholarships, equipment, and endowments.
The Office of Corporate and Foundation Relations assists faculty and other staff with locating funding sources, preparing and submitting grant proposals, and stewarding relationships, including follow-up grant reporting.
We want to sincerely thank the many corporate, foundation, and organizational donors listed here for their support of Ithaca College during fiscal year 2015.
Making a Match
Matching gifts make a difference, doubling or even tripling one person's contribution to the IC experience.
Here, you'll find the names of companies who contributed to the college last year by matching an employee's gift. Matching gifts are a simple way to increase the effect of philanthropy and make life at Ithaca College even better.
We extend our thanks to these organizations and their employees for going the extra mile to help IC students get the best education possible.
